Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 14 Runs | WI: 143/5

  • DP Hyatt14 (7b)
  • CD Barnwell34 (16b)
  • YK Pathan4-0-22-0
  • MM Patel4-0-35-1

Those fireworks from Barnwell in the end were light consolation for West Indies in a game won comfortably by the Indians. Sammy had them in trouble with his four-for, but Rohit and Badri helped them recover to what turned out to be a match-winning total. Samuels and Bravo should have taken off a lot earlier than they did, and there was too much left for those down the order in the chase, though Barnwell impressed. Join us in a bit for the presentation.

Meanwhile, Shane Shillingford, the offspinner, has been cleared by the ICC to resume bowling in international cricket.

Sammy: "We stuck at it to start with but we let them get 20 runs too many. We need to go back to the drawing board. I was a little surprised by the pitch, it was a good decision to field but we didn't restrict them to the total we wanted. Dot balls have been plaguing us and we left it a little too late in the end. But with people like Barnwell, we know we can chase big Twenty20 totals. The batsmen should play the spinners better come Monday."

Badrinath is the Man of the Match: "My form is good, and I'm happy to start the tour well. The track was a little similar to what we have back in India, so that helped. We initially thought of getting close to 140. It was tough to bat, and it was damp, but we played some shots in the end to get to 160."

Raina: "We played well, the bowlers executed the plans very well. This is the best fielding side we've had in the last four to five years. Our new coach Fletcher and Trevor Penny, the fielding coach, have helped us. Badri and Rohit set it up for us."

That's all we have from here, folks. Join us again in a couple of days for the first ODI. Until then, it's goodbye. Adios.

Pathan to Barnwell, 1 run, just the single, mistimed it, was trying to clear deep midwicket but it got to that fielder on the bounce

Yusuf to finish the game, 30 needed off the final over. The surge has come a little too late it seems. But West Indies have the right man on strike
